Pseudoexfoliative (PSX) material in the conjunctiva was found to have a close association with elements of the elastic system in 13 eyes of patients with PSX disease studied ultrastructurally. Pseudoexfoliation aggregates were rare within vascular walls but frequent in proximity to the plasmalemma of stromal fibroblasts. No amyloid was found. A striking feature was the association of PSX fibers with the elastosis seen in many of the specimens. Typical PSX fibers were present in clumps of… CONTINUE READING
